Every learner is an individual with unique qualities, hopes and fears and with their own particular reasons for learning English. How can we as teachers tap into these traits to help our adult learners flourish? What role can personalization play in this and how is it related to authenticity, choice, and developing further as a learner and user of English?

In this webinar, Frances Eales, experienced ELT teacher, trainer and author, shares how educators can embrace the personalization element at the heart of language learning. Frances will discuss the relevance of language learning to adult learners’ lives and goals, and how they can build confidence in expressing themselves while enjoying the learning experience.
